Memories of Egypt

In 2005 after returning from a year of living at the chilly South Pole, hubdude and I spent a few months traveling through Europe and ended our trip with a few weeks in Egypt. It was a mildly challenging country to travel through as a woman, but even with those minor annoyances, it was a fabulous country to visit. We met incredibly kind people, saw artifacts and monuments that were far more spectacular than all the history books and movies lead you to believe and experienced an array of cultures within the few communities that we were lucky enough to visit.

It's worrisome what's happening there now, but at the same time it's exciting to see that people with such diversity of cultures and thought can come together to work for change for the masses.
